Subject: Part V of Besse's 1938-39 amateur film about Britton,S.D.
In Part V, among the highlights are kids playing, watching the boys track team, and some social event in high school. The people certainly kept busy.

Another interesting collection of people looking away from the camera as they're walking past, Also, a great marble match takes place, what looks to be a social, and in the centerpiece, school boys from the Britton Braves demonstrate some athletics. What's so interesting about this footage is the lack of resources for these athletes. Like they're running on a dirt road. Liked the high jump contest too, as some athletes apparently didn't know that the object was to jump OVER the bar (what looks to be a stick actually) NOT through it.
